I would go to click here and download the hard disk users guide, you can get this under support/downloads.

Follow Totally-braindead's link to the UK site - samsung.com seems useless as you said.

See if there is any info on this site which may help. It may have something to do with the 137GB bios limit. Or bios recognition and setting click here

The operating system is xp;Manufacturer- samsung.

don't forget you have to partition and format the hdd before windows can see it.
